Tuesday's Tip - Leftovers

Does the thought of eating food from the freezer or leftovers disgust you?  If this is the case, you are probably going about heating it the wrong way.  If you are warming meat up, it tastes much better if you heat it up in the oven.  I've been told it helps if you put the microwave on 50% power or less.  It does help, but I still prefer the flavor of the oven.

Also, as you try things out for your freezer test one meal to see if your family likes the taste of that meal frozen.  My family prefers to have meatballs, meatloaf, and salisbury steak mixed and just put raw in the freezer.  I save time by making them all at the same time, but the cooking is done on the night of the meal.  Read this here to see how.

I marinate Chicken breasts in Italian Dressing or my Stir Fry marinade, then as it thaws it marinates at the same time.  Some meals taste just as good from the freezer and others don't.  Try them and see which ones you and your family like.
